I know the season isn't even over yet and I should just enjoy these last few weeks with Kloppo, but I can't help myself... I'm starting to get really excited for next season. It is not a secret that I think extremely highly of Tuchel, and while he won't replace Kloppo as the coach of my heart, I think many things will change for the better. First of all is the change in style of play that will definitely happen. Tuchel prefers a "Guardiola-esqule" style of play: more possession, quicker center focused attacking players backed by extremely high and wide outside backs. While we will see weekly line-up and formation switches the most often used will likely be a a 4-1-2-1-2.

I don't know if anyone else enjoys creating fictitious/wishful thinking squads for the future, but if I was the head scout for Tuchel these would be my suggested transfers and line-up. This is a combination of what I hope will happen what I expect will happen.

OUT:
Hummels +€38.000.000
Gündoğan +€20.000.000
Mkhitaryan +€20.000.000
Immobile +€15.000.000
Ramos +€8.000.000
Pische +€7.000.000
Weidenfeller +€3.000.000
Jojic +€3.000.000
Dudziak (Out on Loan)
Hofmann (Out on Loan)

I would love to see Hummels and Illkay continue on with Dortmund, but I just really don't see any hope and we could use the money they bring in to afford the cut that needs to happen on different parts of the pitch.

IN:

Vietto -€20.000.000
Fekir -€15.000.000
Geis -€12.000.000
Praet -€12.000.000
Castro -€11.000.000
Baba -€10.000.000
Horn -€9.000.000

1st Team:


------------Horn-------------
Kuba----Socke----Ginter---Baba
------------Sahin-------------
-----Fekir---------Kampl------
------------Reus--------------
------Vietto------Auba--------

Back-Up:

GK: Langerak
RB: Durm
LB: Schmelzer
CB: Subo, Stankovic
DM: Geis, Burnic
LCM/RCM: Castro, Praet, Passlack
OM: Kagawa, Praet
RS/LS/: Reus, Harder


This line-up would make us much more flexible and difficult to read especially against deep defending opponents. Vietto and Auba could drift wide and Reus could come up higher almost playing a false 9 on attack. Sahin would drop in between the two CB's and the outside backs would push up to outside mids turning it into 3-4-3 on attack. On defense it would turn more into a 4-3-1-2 with Fekir and Kampl dropping back a bit. This line-up would be an absolute dream in my eyes and the kind of change I would love to see after this season.

Would love to see your guy's "Dortmund 2014/2015" if you got to play head scout!
are you kidding me? I love to look ahead and say "what if"

I agree with most of your transfer outs:

Miki, Immobile, Ramos, Jojic or Bender

Would like to see Mats and Illkay stay but dont know if they will. I am not that good of a scout or know much about market value, but I would love to see volland or firmino from Hoffenhiem. I don't know if they are realistic options or not.

I also will be interested to see how a healthy sahin and kagawa look in August 2015. I think a full session in the bvb camp really can help kagawa out. He has shown flashes of his old self and other times he has been just flat. Lets end the season strong and have a great off season.
is subotic leaving too?
Kuba as a RB? Interesting. Especially for how injury prone he is. He's also getting up there in terms of age. A good back-up on the wing, but not a whole lot more in my eyes. I'd definitely start Durm in the 1st team.

You're not kidding about 'hard to read' here. In general I'm not a fan of this kind of firesale, start over -type squad changes. Although it's hard to disagree with most of your picks.

I expect Gundogan to go. I hope Mikhi goes. Immobile and Ramos are also hard to see in the squad next season. Hummels will stay unless some silly team offers to pay more than he's worth (€40m would probably do it). Also, I would keep Piszczek over Schmelle %100. Praet would be a fantastic signing. But I'll admit to not having seen much of any of the others.
Haha! Check this Tuchel-song; from August 2013 already:

Welcome Thomas Tuchel! Let's hope he'll be as good as the last Mainz coach who joined us :)

Congrats on getting Tuchel very smart choice, wish more clubs where run like Dortmund.

Even a few days after the announcement, I still had tears in my eyes thinking about Kloppo leaving us, but I genuinely believe him and his decision.

I saw yesterday that he said he could take a year off, but do you guys have any guesses where he will go? I don't see any of the PL managers in danger, no Arsenal, no United, no City, no Chelsea, maybe Liverpool, but even that is a far reach, because I think Rodgers is doing a great job. I don't see Madrid, Barca, or Atletico. I don't see PSG. Kloppo has mentioned that he, and all good coaches must watch Sacchi, so if I had to guess that if next year he was going anywhere, it would be Milan.

On our note, I am extremely excited to see the tactician Tüchel join us. I'm excited to see how he adapts this team into a top Bundesliga team again.
Well, City are having a poor season, and Pellegrini is under pressure. He might get sacked for Klopp. (Not likely tho).
Congrats on getting Tuchel

Probably the most sensible choice
Congratulation to Tuchel. Good choice
The team really showing they're prepared to wave Klopp goodbye in the best possible way. This is probably the best game of the season so far. Micki was outstanding!
+5
Definitely! It's almost a shame to have seen the team playing so nicely and with cohesion today. Where were these guys the rest of the season?

I really hope Auba goes nowhere
Auba should've had a brace here. He was behind the ball when the pass was played. Could've been 3-0 already!
Was wondering something about Tüchel, seeing as he could be our next coach. Why did he leave Mainz?
I just know Tuchel wanted to leave Mainz with mutual consent, but they held him to his contract so he resigned, only able to be signed freely by other clubs right about this time in 2015. No idea why though.
Aha. Curious.
Thanks for the answer buddy
